    [SOLVED] Which Processor Family


    Hello,

    I want to configure my new kernel but I've no idea which processor family I've to choose. My processor is a Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz. Does anyone has an idea?

    Regards,

    There is an option for core 2 /Xeon proccessors. Select that one.

    Thx for the very very fast answer.

    I found only the "Core 2/newer Xeon". But I think my kernel isn't newer then Xeon, or?
